Nivea Men, male grooming brand, has accomplished a virtual Guinness World Records feat. The record created was for the title, “Most People Washing Their Face Online Simultaneously” on a live stream where 119 Indian men participated with the newly launched Nivea Men Acne Face Wash.

Participants rose to the challenge and washed their faces for a minute, making a new virtual Guinness World Records feat for the skincare brand.
